News and Notes on Charlie Haas, MVP, Royal Rumble, More

– Richard sent the following: MVP was on Good Day on FOX here in Dallas to promote Smackdown!’s move to MyNetwork TV (FOX owns MyNetwork here in Dallas) He talked about getting into wrestling while in prison and gave the anchors some “bling”. He let them hold his 305 necklace for a minute before taking it away from them. He talked about the schedule they keep, the charity work and mentioned that he now lives in Houston and wanted to encourage people to donate to the Red Cross for Hurricane relief. They also mentioned Wrestlemania in Houston and MVP encouraged the people of Dallas to go.  All and all, he came off real well, a little bit in character but, he had fun with them it seems. He was hitting on the female anchor as they went to break, which was hilarious as she seem to be legitimately afraid of him.
